Why can't we choose or define our own erase schema for the explorer context menu erase option? some of us like 2 passes pseudo random followed by NULLing the sectors including cluster tips (assuming you do always erase a file to its final cluster tip even if that is longer than the original files)

Also when you erase freespace on a drive do you also optionally erase all the cluster tips of existing files? If not then how is your product better than the free Eraser from https://eraser.heidi.ie/

A suggestion to the developer, detect if the target drive uses SSD technology and supports TRIM command or Deallocate if on a SCSI based USB bridge if so rather than overwriting which does not technically over-write data on SSD memory cells have the program issue dellocate or TRIM commands to the drives directly to instruct the firmware to erase those memory cells at the earliest oportunity. Do not rely on OS support for TRIM or Deallocate as that support is inconsistent across the claimed operating systems you support.

It does not install on Windows XP SP3, "This program requires Windows NT version 5.1 Service Pack 4 or later."
So no 2000 or xp, when sp4 for xp does not exist.

I agree with MikeR comment, but wish to add my two cents.

I erased a HDD once in my life just to know the effects. Actually, I do not need to erase a disk cause I never store any sensible information in my computers.

Nevertheless, I never simply throw away any HD, SSD or Flash even if defective. Any time I need to put a defective disk in the garbage bin I simply use a degausser to render the HD completely unusable. Some times I open the HD case dismount the disk and break it to pieces. Lots of scratches can do the job too.

However, if I sell or donate a computer the easier and reliable way to erase the disk is using Gordon Hughes' free HDDErase program available at UCSandiego's Center for Memory and Recording Research. cmrr.ucsd.edu/people/Hughes/secure-erase.html.

There are many free options like DBAN and ERASER.

My last line:
Is it safe to erase an SSD? The answer is NO. You could do it, if you really need to, but don't risk to destroy and expensive SSD just to see what happens.

Thanks, but I pass.

Luis, it is safe to secure erase your SSD. But you have to do it the hard way. SHUTDOWN. Disconnect your SSD. PC POWER ON. Boot your PartedMagic Live DVD. Reconnect the SSD to the SATA-cable. Click on Erase Disk and choose the Secure Erase method. Almost done - the erase process will need some 20 seconds.

Do NOT use USB for this, you need SATA! When using USB, it may corrupt and destroy the SSD.

Luis,

Don't trust HDDerase. It won't delete your data beyond 128 GB. It's and old DOS program. You can confirm this with a Linux Live CD.

Better use Linux' dd command:

dd if=zero of=your_disk_here bs=8192

Have to be ***very*** careful not to overwrite with zeros another disk. Syntax is important.

It looks good to me....this software got nice reviews online as well. Those who make criticisms about this program should give us better FREE alternatives to make their comments more helpful.

We're not here to give free alternatives.. not what this service is for - it's for the developers of software to get feedback on their products and improve their products. I think that some users here have forgotten.. and to the ones who are going to respond to say otherwise - you're obviously not the ones I was referring too. lol. ;)

Ward LeGrow, Totally pointless comment. Mentioning FREE and BETTER alternatives here can actually improve developers software giving away their paid product here for free. Not hard to understand....

Today's developer needs to do a heck of a lot more in the way of explaining than merely this:

"Can it erase Solid-state drive? Yes, AweEraser can help you permanently erase data from SSD without shortening the service life of the SSD."

on its website FAQ:

https://www.magoshare.com/data-eraser/windows-data-eraser.html

An SSD can at best have its operating life greatly diminished and at worst be totally wrecked by attempting the kind of erasing associated with standard HDD. Encryption is the way to go with SSD data management -- or the use of a specific utility provided by the drive manufacturer itself. In 99% of cases, the best thing to do with an SSD is. . . leave it alone.

As to HDD erasure, Peter Gutmann's 1996 algorithm is highlighted as a persuasive product feature, despite the fact that the evolution of hard disk technology in the past 21 years has made the 35-pass overwrite an absurd overkill. Peter Gutmann himself has criticised the continuing deployment of that algorithm as mere "voodoo incantation" by the clueless: doesn't the developer know that?

Thanks GOTD, but no thanks.

MikeR, you can choose your erasing method : gutmann is one of them.

MikeR, SSDs cannot be securely "erased" by overwriting. Anyone who claims differently is either misleading you, or they don't understand how SSDs store data,
